Call for Auditions - Tapestry New Opera

Collaborative Piano Blog readers will know about my ongoing engagement with Tapestry New Opera, one of the world's leading creation and development centers for new operatic work.

As part of Tapestry's current studio season, they will be auditioning singers from October 19-21 in the Ernest Balmer Studio in Toronto's Distillery District. October 19 and 20 will be Equity days, and non-Equity singers can audition on the 21st. From the audition posting, here's the type of singer that Tapestry is looking for:
Singers interested in working with the company should have a strong interest in participating in the development and performance of new works of opera and demonstrate excellent acting skills.

Applicants should ensure that they are familiar with Tapestry’s mandate prior to applying and should keep the mandate in mind when choosing audition repertoire.
You'll need to bring two arias, one from 1950 or later. I'll be playing for the auditions on Tuesday the 19th and Thursday the 21st.

To arrange your audition, send an email to audition [at] tapestrynewopera dot com. Hope to see you there!
